Mission Statement

Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control is comprised of a dedicated group of animal-loving staff and volunteers who aid in the adoption of homeless pets in Palm Beach County. We keep the community up to date on events, adoption promotions, and pets in need at our local county shelter. Please consider joining our team.


  • Encourage pet owners to be responsible for pets in their care by providing educational programs on humane treatment, animal behavior training, and proper control.

  • Appropriately enforce county, state, and federal animal laws.

  • Provide safe shelter and veterinary care for lost, abandoned and unwanted animals.

  • Return to owners or adopt to new homes, as many impounded animals as possible.

  • Humanly euthanize injured, sick, and unwanted animals.

  • Encourage spay/neuter and provide reduced-cost surgery for Palm Beach County pet owners through our Spay Shuttle nonprofit program.

  • Conduct other effective programs, which protect the health, safety and welfare of animals and the residents of Palm Beach County.

  • Provide excellence in customer service.

Would you recommend Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control?

the reason why is because I like dogs even if I don't have one of my own I really like to help out dogs and puppies so I thought walking them would really help out

I love dogs and there are lots of great dogs at Palm Beach Animal Care & Control that love volunteers! Dog Play Group is so much fun and you can see how much the dogs enjoy and benefit from it. It helps them to be more relaxed in the kennel and to help us match them to adopters. Really nice volunteers and there are lots of options depending on what you like to do. Plus it's great exercise! Come join the team!
